ENGLEWOOD – The Hermitage Artist Retreat, a not-for-profit artist
retreat in Englewood, and the Aspen Music Festival and School (AMFS) in
Colorado, announce that Sid Richardson, a promising composition student at AMFS, has been awarded the 2018 Hermitage Prize.
Richardson receives a six-week residency at the Hermitage, along with a $1,000 stipend for travel and food expenses. Richardson earned his Ph.D. in
composition in the Department of Music at Duke University in Durham, N.C. He also holds degrees from Boston Conservatory and Tufts University and has received numerous awards and accolades.
The Hermitage invites accomplished painters, sculptors, writers, playwrights,
poets, composers and other artists from all over the world for residencies on
its historic beachfront campus. Artists are asked to interact with the community
during their stay and, as a result, Hermitage artists touch thousands of Gulf Coast
community residents with unique and inspiring programs each year.
